A Brief stay in Benson...

Benson, like Tucson, is another great place to hang around and explore, just for different reasons.  Small town about 45 miles east of Tucson, along I-10, with Tombstone, Bisbee, and Kartchner Caverns nearby, and those beautiful Dragoon Mountains providing hiking and jeep tracks and lighting up with the setting sun.  Nope, we did none of the above though have on many visits in the past.

We stay at the SKP Saguaro Park, another Escapees RV Club co-op park, similar to the one we stayed at in Yuma.  As full time RVers they provide us with an address and excellent mail-forwarding services, as well as many parks across the US to stay for a very reasonable charge.

We had timed our annual spring cleaning; carpet, ceilings, upholstery, and window valances, to coincide with the end of our 3 month desert stay and the dust, sand and mud encountered to date.  We use Kyle at Complete Carpet Cleaning and think he does a great job keeping this old coach looking spiffy.

Carpets just cleaned & Scotch-guarded

Upholstery, too

And the ugly ceilings are clean!

Howard even did the windows!
And the weather is sunny, clear, and back in the 80s....Then the phone rang.  Hi Mom, we're renting a little RV and thought we could meet you in Pismo Beach for Spring Break!  That would be the Half Moon Bay family; daughter Terri, hubby Clint, 16 yr. old Daniel, 2 1/2 yr. old Liliana, and 10 month old Damien.  Of course darling, we'll leave tomorrow!  And we're on our way to the Central California coast.  Just paid $4.25 per gallon for diesel in Quartzsite.  It's $4.60+ in CA!!  And we're ready for the ocean!
